Atmospheric Integrated Research at University of California, Irvine

Addressing the urgent challenges we face in air and water quality, human health, climate change, as well as green technology through the integration of research, education, and outreach.

Welcome to AirUCI

AirUCI is an Organized Research Unit (ORU) located at the University of California, Irvine. We are a multidisciplinary environmental research team dedicated to understanding and solving issues related to air pollution, climate change, sustainability, and green technology — locally and globally — and their effects on human health and well-being.

To achieve these ambitious goals, our world-renowned research group has come together to form an integrated team of researchers, engineers, and health scientists whose focus is to elucidate the fundamental science and impacts of pollution, energy, and climate change and their effects on society and on our planet.

Our award-winning team conducts collaborative, fundamental research into the critical environmental and associated health issues of our time, using cutting-edge technology and scientific and engineering approaches that are state-of-the-art. 

NOTICE: Due to COVID virus restrictions, most of the UCI campus is currently working remotely and we may be a bit slow to respond to inquiries.  However, we will continue to operate as best we can and hope that this situation will not last beyond March 2021.  Thank you in advance for your patience!  Also, all on-campus events are cancelled until further notice.  Sadly, our visitors have returned to their home institutions and/or countries due to COVID requirements, but we hope to welcome them back again once the crisis is past.
